Title: Minor Consent in HIV Biomedical Prevention Research - The Collision of Ethics, Regulations, and Adolescent Development.
Date: November 16th, 2016; 5:30-7:00pm
Location: MRGN 121 (1201 West State St)
Abstract: While minor consent is the accepted standard for behavioral HIV prevention research, minor consent for biomedical prevention research raises regulatory and ethical concerns. Ought a minor consent to a randomized controlled trial for an unproven medication?  Do they have the cognitive and emotional maturity?  What do the regulations say? Dr. Ott will provide a developmental framework for understanding minor consent for research on sensitive topics.

 In conjunction with this formal presentation through PLEPS, faculty are invited to participate in informal discussions and initial consultations with Dr. Ott on topics related to research and interests. The informal session (2:30-4:30 PM, MJIS 2001) is open to all interested Purdue researchers (faculty, staff, and students) to participate on a drop-in basis. If you have a question about Dr. Ott’s research or about minor consent or waivers of parental consent in research generally please bring these to the open discussion session or you can schedule a meeting one to one with her that afternoon through Andrew O. Brightman (aob@purdue.edu).
